Re: given name Chashele #latvia #names

Harvey, 
You asked about the given name Chashele for someone born in 19th century Lithuania. According to Alexander Beider’s A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names, Khasele is a Yiddish variant of the name Khane (or Chane), apparently a diminutive form of the derivation Khase. Perhaps that is the origin of your relative's name. 
Sincerely,
Jay
